|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Kimchi performed this skill really well! We started off with an engagement game and within no time did I have all her focus. We then progressed to more of a recall and she again did really well. This task would involve her wondering off and then being called back to us when distracted. She came 90% of the time called. Even when food was on the floor she would quickly switch her attention to me and come. Whenever she was called she would very excitably run towards me and even without being asked sat once she reached me. Her next level will be to increase the distance of her recall! It is important to do recalls frequently within a variety of distractions at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: She performed really well when learning the skill middles! Firstly we started by luring her around my legs and through to get her familiar with walking between my legs. After a couple minutes she was doing great so we increased the skill level. Our next step was to get her in a drop and come between my legs when prompted with only a hand as an incentive. She did really well with this and was able to come straight to me and stop between my legs. I tried to increase the angle however she did struggle so we worked on distance instead. The next step for her will be to start increasing her angle. This skill is not only a fun one to show off but works as a good recall.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: She was a very confident girl and was able to do paws up on the wobble boards! We started on the easier warble board and had no issues so we decided to moved up to the harder one. She struggled abit more at the start and was hesitant, only was placing one paw on. However with encouragement she quickly built the confidence up to put two paws on. By the end of the session she was able to hold it there for 30 seconds. The next step could be to get her on the skateboard.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
